David McGeeAssociate Professor
Michaela is a graduate student who uses proxy system modeling to study climate change in the late Pleistocene. She models proxies of precipitation in the Southwestern United States and how icebergs carry sediment during Heinrich Events.
Adam Jost manages the McGee Lab facilities. He is interested in exploring questions about the co-evolution of life and the environment over geologic time using isotope geochemistry. His ongoing work revolves around ocean anoxia & acidification during mass extinction events, Neoproterozoic glaciations, and the impact of diagenesis on isotope proxies.
Christopher is a postdoctoral researcher using inorganic geochemistry to explore ocean chemistry and past climate changes. His current research includes reconstruction of dust accummulation rates in marine records from the east and west African margin using uranium and thorium isotopes, and development of stable barium isotopic measurements and applications to marine environmental samples.
Ben is a first-year student, and he is currently working on a project reconstructing past precipitation and ecosystem changes in Madagascar using stalagmites.
